TUCSON - CD8 candidate Jesse Kelly has a strong lead in the polls from the initial unofficial results for the CD8 Special Primary Election.
"We're extremely humbled and honored by the support we've had from the voters who support our plan of lower taxes, more jobs, and lower gas prices using American energy," he told News 4 Tucson's Brandon Gunnoe.
He currently holds 38 percent of the vote statewide, and has a commanding lead over his other GOP nominees.
When asked how he expects to run his race against Democrat Ron Barber in the Special General Election, he told News 4 Tucson:
"We're going to stick with the issues that matter to voters. We have seniors and veterans and Southern Arizona families that are hurting. They need lower taxes. They need lower gas prices using American energy, and we're going to present our plan to them."
